Spring update for May 2010:

– Just polished off the last of last years champagne.  Still VERY VERY nice – and strong.!! :>

– Still loadsa nettle beer.

– Peas are doing well this year – now out in the garden

– tomato effort as every year is under-way and probaly underwelming as always.

– we have lotsa nice additions this year particuarly as wedding presents -white currents, apple and pear tree (in large pots), asparagus (not edible till next year or 2012), 2 rows of raspberry canes etc

– going for potatoes and carrots mainly in tyre stacks and veg bags this year (as been doing so badly in the ground in previous years….

– we have 7 chickens now – one was pretty poorly and the wife did the deed whilst I was at work, then to compensate we got 4 new rescue hens from a battery farm that was due to kill them off.

– Had a great DIY job recently as we got a v large playhouse from freecycle
